Question User role: Translator|HACKED

Hello,

this appears in my user role:
Translator | HACKED

Don't tell me, my account has been hacked

Thanks for the info.

EDIT:
Could this be a leftover from 2016?

Dear old Master of Funk, I have already reported the problem to the Admins and Super Mods 6 hours ago. Let’s hope there is some corrective action that will undo this chaos.

From my point of view, it might well be that someone hacked the Admin account LAS (dummy) and maybe even the Admin account of the red_avatar.

The only visible problems:

• The changes in the names of the roles (| HACKED);

• The changes in account of LAS on the main site;

• And lastly because the LAS has suddenly gained more than 400 million PoE! This is very unfair!

Thanks Mystvan.

I have just checked, and I can't see the problems you mention? Do you think it's fixed now?

It has not been me who's fixed this. Has anyone else from Abandonia told any of you that they were working on fixing the vandalism?

I will email Abovo.

I could try to get in contact with Red Avatar. How strange is his account activity, I mean do you happen to know when his previous activity had been? Perhaps he's been lurking recently for some time and it's just a coincidence.

Dear Grand Emperor Japodeis, I took a while to make screenshots that will illustrate the problem. Describing in words can sometimes be a bit confusing. With the images, I hope the situation would be clear:

Before and after hacking creating chaos in the ranking of PoE


Before and after hacking creating chaos in the role of each Abandonian (Admin, Updater, Translator)


The account of Admin LAS


Admins: red_avatar and LAS


PS: Please, I am not accusing the Admin red_avatar of doing something wrong, but just pointing to the coincidence. The last activity (time) of the two was only 8 minutes. Or that the account of red_avatar has been hacked.

Thanks for your quick and friendly response. I believe your theory about LAS is true since it shows the same profile picture as the twitter account of the hacker, who managed to hack Abandonia in 2016.

Greetings from Poke-man, O Grand Emperor Japodeis.

I suspect the hacker has used the Admin account LAS to create chaos on the main site. Now, I made screenshot of the hacker using the Admin account of the red_avatar to make edits in the AB Forums.

Ah sorry I couldn't see the problems before because I think there's a bug that you see an old cached version of the website if you're not logged in. I was seeing an old ok version when it was already hacked.

I honestly don't know when I have time to deal with this. I will try to take at least some quick measures asap. There are other staff and admins helping as well.

Thank you for the heads up and for documenting the changes.

No problem, O Grand Emperor Japodeis.

One mistake I made is that I thought the signature image of The Fifth Horseman of the Apokolips had been deleted. I tested the same link and the image appears in other browsers. Maybe for some reason, Adblock Plus ended up blocking such an image.

PS:
